Description

A cryptic note from their father leads the Hardy boys to the Caribbean where they must solve the mystery, but only if they can successfully evade the henchmen who are trailing them.

Reviewed on 24th July 2020

Deep into the original run of the Hardy Boys novels, Skeleton Rock starts well - with a classic new hobby for Chet, a hometown mystery, and a collection of surprising family-owned vehicles.

But later on it falls down a bit, as the brothers head off someone remote, and get involved with yet another group of indiginous people to represent in a stereotypical and offensive way.

A mediocre entry in the series.
